This new walk on the program, starts close to the Mt Kuringgai Train Station.
We descend via a Management trail into the beautiful Berowra National Park. Here we are delighted by the amazing trees, boulders, and stunning scenery that we always find in this area.
We will walk for about 1.5 hours till we intersect with the GNW Boardwalk. We ascend up a hill then continue on a side track till we reach our snack spot. It here we rest and return via the same path home..
Thornleigh to Hornsby, Thornleigh
Sunday 20th June, 6:45am
HIKEFit Coach: Sonia
Its the Thornleigh to Hornsby section of the GNW.
Although this walk is fairly easy at the beginning, it’s the 2nd half that you come for . The scenery is lovely, the hike is challenging and the ending is what is it is all about.
Its a one way track, only 10km ... so some car pooling is needed on this Hike. We will start at the Thornleigh end and walk to Hornsby. If you are on a train line, we could organise to pickup and drop off at the train station.
Meeting point: 26 Morgan Street, Thornleigh 6.45am
End point: Quarry Road, Hornsby
Chatswood Charms, Chatswood West
Sunday 20th June 2:30pm
Hike Coach: Sonia
Who would believe there is a fabulous bush walk in Chatswood? That's why it is called Chatswood charms, a delightful hike in the bushy area of Chatswood West, we find creeks waterfall, fabulous birdlife and lots of steps.
It is easy to take a wrong turn. I hear many stories of people losing their way, so ensure you keep up with the leader, or you will need to get an Uber back to the car!
Secret Trail Hunt, Lindfield
Monday 21st June, 7:00am
HIKEFit Leader: Nicola
We will warm up on a lovely meandering trail from the oval down to a wider management trail where we can find a nice pace. Today we will cross Barrie Creek and take a wandering trail before climbing to Barrie St. If the weather is fair, we will return to the creek by a foot pad so that we really get the flavour of the casuarina forest through which we are walking. The views from near the water are very pretty, so keep your camera ready.
I recommend you wear long pants for this one.
Meeting Point: Lindfield Oval, Tryon Road East Lindfield
